Career Information: Speech and Language Therapy

The Edinburgh Speech and Language Therapy Department runs information sessions for those who are considering a career in this field.  It provides the opportunity to learn a bit more about what this career entails and also gives individuals the chance to hear first hand from service users and their families about the service they have received, and hopefully, the value the service adds. 

The next session is on Thursday 29th of June, 5:30pm – 7pm at The School House at the Astley Ainslie Hospital. For further details, please click here.
